Effect of Paraffin Oil Used as a Lubricant in Tensile Tests of Carbon Fibre Bundles
The failure of carbon fibre bundles of Tenax 5131 HTA with 6000 filaments is characterised using the European Standard EN 1007-5. It is shown that the addition of liquid paraffin to the bundle causes a global change of the load-displacement curve and the effects of the presence of a liquid lubricant are discussed.
